Foundations of Thai. Book II.
Anthony, Edward M.; And Others
This text is intended for use in second-year university level Thai courses after completion of "Foundation of Thai, Book I" (ED 014 690, ED 014 691) in the first year. Twenty lessons comprise the core of the text. Much carefully selected material is introduced in the dialogs, and each dialog is followed by a list of new expressions appearing in it. The teacher may wish to make judgements about which items are to be presented for recognition and which are to be presented for both recognition and production. A key to suggested techniques for dialog presentation is always included. New patterns, whether lexical, grammatical, or both are regularly presented in frames which graphically contrast the points at issue. Following pattern drills are aimed at making the choices outlined in the frames automatic. Appended are (1) a selective grammar review, (2) grammar addenda, and (3) miscellaneous addenda on the Thai writing system. Over twenty hours of tapes accompany the course. Persons interested in copying the tapes should write to the Department of General Linguistics, 312 Flannery Building, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15213. (DO)
